I agree, depending on the sizes and conditions of your properties, some may be better then others.

I drove a zero turn for a while, and now I have a walk behind. i love them both, but prefer the walk behind as it is more maneuverable and better on slopes. However, I do miss sittin on my ass.

I feel that to be effective I must have both. In saying that though, I think having a 52 walkbehind and a 52 Z would not be as efficient say as a 36 or 48 walk behind and a 60-72 rider. I think it really depends on the properties.

Both have their place - I own one of each and think that is the most efficient. A 36" walk behind and a 60" ZTR fit the bill fine for me.

I had a walkbehind with Velike but, figured what is the use of standing when you can sit on your butt and do the same thing with a zero turn rider.
